  1. Bacon - I like to cook mine in the microwave. Just use a paper plate or microwave plate lined with a paper towel, then add the bacon slices, then another paper towel. Cook 3-4 minutes until crisp, no mess and easy clean up, Remove and let cool. Then fine chop.
  2. Potatoes - Now I use leftovers, but use your favorite recipe, even store bought, it doesn't matter. You just need 4 cups pre-made and preferably slightly chilled. Definitely not warm.
  3. Mix - To a medium size bowl (which the potatoes may already be in) add the cheese, bacon, chives, parsley, onion, salt and pepper, 1/4 cup bread crumbs and mix well.
  4. Eggs - Whisk the eggs to soft peaks. I just whisk by hand, it only takes a few minutes. Add the eggs to the potato mixture and fold lightly.
  5. Puffs - I like to use a ice cream scoop, but a good heaping teaspoon will work just fine. Roll in your hand to a small ball and then slightly flatten, not too flat. Then lightly dredge in the bread crumbs on each side to give a light coating and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and cover.
  6. Important Step - Let them rest and put in the freezer for about 15 minutes to firm up. This helps with the cooking process.
  7. Cooking - I use cast iron for this, but a non stick pan will work just fine. Add the oil and heat to medium high. Then add the chilled cakes and saute 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown. Set to the side on a paper towel to get rid of any additional grease.
  8. Serve - 1-2 patties per person with a dollop of sour cream on each and a few chives if you want.
